After a long journey up to Holcombe, the Clifton Robinsons Ladies 1s were happy that the sun was shining for their fourth league match this season.

The game started with Clifton on the front foot, but a slick counter attack from Holcombe lead to the first goal and the home side being 1-0 up.

Some end to end hockey and some great attacking and defending from both teams meant the game was still 1-0 with only two minutes to go.

In the final 15 seconds, Clifton found one last push and a great delivery in from the left hand side of the pitch by Phoebe Richards found Claire Thomas for a crowded deflection in front of the goal leading to the game finishing as a draw.

3 points, but only one loss, from the opening 4 games of the season for the L1s.
